    A great set of trails allows for lots of wildlife watching! Be on the look out for turtles and waterfowl!

    Great park with hiking/walking trails, lake and picnic areas. Winter Christmas lights are awesome in December.

    During MCRRC races, do the opposite of whatever the race volunteer is shouting into the mega phone. They confuse easily in the cold.

    The disc golf course is excellent and perfectly maintained by volunteers. Three nine-hole loops that end up in the parking lot for a total of 27 holes. Super fun for all and beginner friendly.
